Business capstone: Lean Start-up

A key component of our MBA is a focus on the practical application of theory to real-world business situations. In your final unit, you will confront the challenge that truly pioneering companies face: excellence in new product development.

You will learn and apply the art of lean start-up methodologies to a team project, while integrating the skills, knowledge and experience you have acquired throughout your MBA. At the end of this project, your team will deliver a prototype product to a group of senior stakeholders.

We have developed this unit through extensive consultation with industry, academics at the University of Sydney and academics and teachers at leading international institutions.
